Yogurt Vanilla Pudding

Let's start with a simple math calculation: I love yogurt + my favorite dessert is vanilla pudding = Yogurt Vanilla Pudding!

As incredible as it seems, I came up with this mix just some weeks ago, when I decided to make the Birthday cake of my son, which I decided to be Lemon Cream Cake. I made the cream with a mix of vanilla pudding, yogurt and Quark plus lemon juice. Was delicious!!

So I thought to make the same, but without Quark and lemon, just plain Yogurt and Vanilla Pudding. The result is as well delicious! Though a bit less consistent as Quark adds stability to the mix. If you want it even harder, add transparent Gelatin and let it cool for at least 6 hours. I added one Peach cut in 3 as decoration. Add any fruit you want!

And of course, as my goal for this year is to cook more nutritious and healthy food, avoiding as much as I can the fatty and artificial foods, when its about desserts, what is best than yogurt? and even better a soft delicious yogurt vanilla pudding? njaaammmm! Yogurt is tooooo beneficial for our health, buy as much as you can and start making your salad dressings with yogurt, make pudding with yogurt, make your cakes with yogurt (sometime soon will come this recipe too!), make your drinks with yogurt. Or just add some spoons of yogurt in a bowl, some berries and a bit of honey and oatmeal, there you have a delicious breakfast or snack and even a dessert! Enjoy!!!

(Easy way with commercial vanilla pudding without sugar)

  • 1 package of Vanilla Pudding (without sugar) for 500 ml Milk
  • 400 ml Milk
  • 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp Sugar (I added 2, more than enough!)
  • 1 tsp Bourbon Vanilla extract
  • 6 - 8 Tbsp Full of Plain Yogurt (no sugar, no flavor)
  • Peach or any other fruit to decorate.


Mix the extra spoon of Corn Starch with the Vanilla Pudding powder mix and the Bourbon Vanilla extract. Reserve half a glass of the 400 ml Milk. Add the Vanilla pudding powder and corn starch to the reserved milk in a glass and mix well until dissolved.

Pour the rest of the milk in a sauce pan. Heat until begins to boil. Quickly, as soon as begins to boil, add the dissolved mix of pudding, corn starch and vanilla extract and mix quickly until you obtain a homogeneous mix. Notice it will get hard quickly as it contains less milk and more corn starch. Remove from the heat and pour in a bowl.

Add the yogurt and mix well. Here you have to vigorously mix everything to avoid crumbs. If you still obtain crumbs (mine are there because of taking photos), you can use your hand mixer or stab mixer to mix it thoroughly and make it smooth. Add to individual bowls and decorate with your fruit.

You can refrigerate it for later and better consistency or you can devour it right away :)

You're done!
